The smell of the road, the wind at your back, infinity miles per gallon…
Riding your bike sure is sweet. But you know what would make it even sweeter? The tried-and-tested, make-it-yourself, $10 + 10 minutes Photojojo BikeCam!
Just don’t assemble it while moving. And stop at all red lights. And stop signs. And use your hand signals. And wear a helmet, for pete’s sake. Your brain’s in there.

Why It’s Cool
Cameras are cool and bikes are cool, and the two together are downright freezing. Plus, the Tour de France is in full swing. It’s the season of the bike!
What You’ll Need
Step 1: The Mount
Next, fit the mount around the handlebars toward the middle, where the stem meets the handlebars.
Screw the mount shut.
Step 2: The Screw
Step 3: The Stack, Part 1
Step 4: The Stack, Part 2
Step 5: The Camera
Wear your helmet. Start pedaling. Snap, record, repeat!
p.s. This mount is pretty secure, and we take full responsibility for any fun times and awesome photos taken while using it.
Your camera can now boldly go wherever your bike goes! Here are some ideas…
But, Can’t I Just Buy One?
If the do-it-yourself spirit hasn’t moved you and you just want to buy a mount, give the all-purpose Gorillapod a shake. Wrap it around the stem, handlebars, top tube. Coolest thing about it as a bike mount: its articulated head makes it easy to pan.
See it in action!
